Oil on canvas, 16" by 20", unframed, the subject the holy Wailing Wall of Jerusalem in Israel, said to be the most holy site for Jews. This is a painting by "Jan F.", and it's dated 1993. It's a work of a self-taught (and likely suburban California) painter named Jan Friedman, I was able to determine by comparing it to other works with which it was found, the other ones bearing her full name. The painting has a folk art quality to the figures and the impasto of the wall at right adds an interesting texture. The more one looks at the figures, the more one sees going on in this scene. Curiously, some of them are not quite finished; it's as if the artist tired and decided to come back the next day to complete it, but never did. Save for a horizontal pressure mark near the top of the tower at left, condition is excellent. The work needs a frame, at which point it can be enjoyed on the wall in your Jewish household or added to a Judaica collection. .
